November Recap

Time is flying by. I can’t believe that it is December already!!

So here’s my end of the month recap.

I’m linking it with Erika @ MCM Mama Runs, Marcia @ Marcia’s Healthy Slice and Patty @ My no-guilt life (instead of posting on their TMI theme. I have none of those embarrassing things to write about…yet!)


November Goals:

  • Run 3-4 times each week. YES!

I continue to run 3-4 miles during the week trying to vary my running courses.


near work


in the park


at UAlbany


on the rail trail

  • Continue long runs on the weekend. YES!

Though some have been part of shorter races.






6 with Judy 11/29

  • Run a 5k race under 29 minutes. NOPE!

I helped my STEM runner finish her first 5k instead of racing.


I ran an impromptu 5K on Thanksgiving after I finished the 10K.


  • Run a 10K race under 60 minutes. YES! But barely.


  • Run a 15K race under 1:35. YES!

I even got a PR.



  • Start going to the gym once a week. NO! Someday…
  • Do those planks! NOT REALLY! Probably only 2 or 3 times…

But I did go to yoga twice!!!


  • Continue running with a group. YES!

I have gone every Monday and have enjoyed running with the other group members.


  • Walk 70,000 steps each week. YES!

On the days that I don’t run, my total steps are significantly lower but I make it up on the running days.

  • Run at least 80 miles. YES! 90 miles!!!

pretty consistent running

What else?

  • I ran with Kelly from the STEM program twice and helped her finish her first 5k.  She did great!!


  • I went to NYC with my hubby,  We walked the High Line and saw Lord of the Dance on Broadway. So much fun!


  • I brought my  mentee and her sons to see the Lights in the Park. We go every year but we still enjoy it.


December Goals:

  • Run 3-4 times each week (no matter how cold it gets.)
  • Walk while at work especially on rest days..
  • Continue long runs on the weekend to train for half marathon #17 on February 7.
  • Complete a 5k race under 29 minutes.
  • Complete a half marathon under 2:20.
  • Run at least 85 miles
  • Continue going to yoga.
  • Avoid gaining weight (while attending holiday parties)
  • Spend time with my mentee
  • Start knitting again.

Happy Running! How was your November?  Anything exciting planned for December?

  1. Way to rock a strong November! I can’t believe how fast it flew. Good for you for making it to yoga. I did some at home but zero studio time for me. No weight gain is one of my goals as well. Thanks for linking up!


  2. I think my goal for December is to keep on with this nutty alternate training plan I’m into. It’s not what I want to do, but it doesn’t seem I have a choice. I don’t want to lose my fitness or gain any holiday weight. You’ve had such pretty fall runs! I’m a little (a lot) envious!
